HANNIBAL — The familiar sights and sounds of red kettles and bells will soon return to the tri-states as the Quincy Area Command begins its first day of fundraising in Hannibal and Quincy for the 2019 Christmas campaign on Friday, Nov. 8.

With multiple locations across the tri-states hosting a red kettle, now is a great time for you, your group, or organization to volunteer as a Salvation Army bell ringer. Those interested are encouraged to register online at or contact Seasonal Event Coordinator Jeremy Koren by calling 217-231-5633 or via email at

Funds raised from the red kettles remain local to support The Salvation Army and the services they provide such as holiday meals and toys, shelter for the homeless and job assistance.
